Workers (apparently untethered) hundreds of meters above the Firth Of Forth halfway through the construction of the Forth Road Bridge in 1961.
Above: the Eiffel Tower in 1888; Christ The Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro (built 1926-1931); Sydney Opera House (built 1959-1973); the Statue Of Liberty’s torch-bearing arm displayed at the Centennial Exposition in 1876; Tower Bridge London (built 1886-1894); Manhattan Bridge (built 1901-1912) and The Golden Gate Bridge San Francisco (built 1933-1937).
Construction aerials (taken yesterday) of the new bus/Luas/cycle/pedestrian bridge over the Liffey, designed to increase footfall on Marlborough and Hawkins Street, providing a north/south link between Abbey Street and Pearse Street.

1 WTC will reach its full height of 1776ft (541m) next month and is scheduled to open in Spring 2013.
UPDATE: The original gizmodo video is gone from Youtube but still up on ABC.
234m above the streets of Perth, construction workers on City Square Tower recreate the famous 1932 photo taken on the 69th floor of the GE Building in Manhattan.
These lads are tethered with harnesses and wearing safety gear. Their predecessors in NYC wore flat caps and were attached to the beam by their bad asses alone.
Still. Go steel monkeys!
